Award-winning author and illustrator Rosemary Wells has donated the
jacket art for a new (1999) edition of Morris's Disappearing Bag to the
Texas Library
Association. The panel (9.25 X 10.25 inches; image area 5.75 X 5.5
inches) features Morris himself, the loveable star of this story that
has become a Christmas

Raffle tickets are $5.00 each and will be available at the Texas Book
Festival November 5-7 in Austin and at the American Library Association
Midwinter Conference in San Antonio in January 2000. The drawing will
take place at the end of January.

Proceeds from the raffle will build the Texas Library Disaster Relief
Fund. Each $5 ticket secures you a chance at owning this original
illustration while providing
Texas libraries with a better chance to rebuild collections decimated by
disasters such as floods, tornados, fires, and hurricanes. The first
raffle item, an off-drawing
from The Bear Went Over the Mountain, was offered at TLA's annual
conference in April 1999 and raised $8000 for the fund. That piece was
donated by the
winner to the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature in
Abilene, Texas

The RAFFLE FORM and additional information are available at
http://www.txla.org/wells/raffle.html.  Print and mail the raffle ticket
with your money to Texas Library Association, 3355 Bee Cave Road, Suite
401, Austin, TX 78746.
